Lily Pilly, isn't there a local gardening club that could help with teas? Mine have said they will help me.

Just a quick look in to say Hello, then I must go outside and do something useful.

Glorious garden, Lily Pilly. It looks huge.

Weeds or flowers?

That's funny, I wrote first one first!

 2nd one is wood avens, very common here, insignificant yellow flower, but seeds are a nuisance, as has been said.

3rd is some sort of pea, but can't tell if it's a weed one or a plant one.

First one doesn't look like a weed. Could it be arabis?

Back from meeting with Hautefort Gardening Club. Think DD went once. Local French chap who has a nursery gave a talk about fruit trees. His nursery is only 15 mins from me, shall go and have a look.

Well done, DD, on that bed. It was a jungle and you've tamed it.

Lovely colour jacket, Dove, reminds me of a John Betjamen rose.

Morning all. Slept badly, awake a lot between 3 and 6am, then overslept. Going to Leclerc supermarket, groceries. Gravel for the drive coming this afternoon and wood man cutting logs, so heavy work later, gravel spreading and log stacking.

How did the viewings go, BM?

BL - when do you think you might be in Suffolk? Perhaps we could make it a TWIGS outing as our intended visit to BC's in August had to be cancelled due to bad weather?


We haven't planned it yet, apart from July and Suffolk, maybe up to Diss as well, well, East Anglia. We'll have the car. But it would be lovely if it were a TWIGS outing.

How horrid for you, Runnybeak. Hope it recovers soon.

Dove, we are hoping to go to Suffolk in July and one thing we would like to do is visit Betto Chatto's garden. You said you'd like to go ???

Morning all.

Just off to post letters and take rubbish to the bins. No collection here. Nothing exciting planned.
